I bought three months ago a new HDDrive (WDigital 20,5 GB).I week ago it started to behave strange (I mean noisy, sticking, couple of bad clusters e.t.c). The representative here is willing to replace it with a new one, but I want to loose nothing of the programs, data and the structure and the configuration of W98 I achived last three months (I don't want even to think of reinstalling all the stuff I have). I own a capable CD-R drive. Is there a way to use it to obtain an "absolutely exact" copy of the contents of my HDD -which is still working and so to "paste" these on the new replaced HDD? Please keep in mind that when the new HDD will come I'll have nothing but a W98 bootable 3,5 diskette - I mean I don't want to reinstall even W98 again.

You can simple use ghose.

www.ghose.com download the ent. version and there's instruction for how to use it...


or try some shareware under

Or try another trial software

*all the software offer partition to partition clone which mean you can just copy your hd to an image and reload it to the new hard disk and reboot the computer and you won't lost any files/setting.
